2017 CPAC Summer Festival Wushu Demonstration (2017年华夏节武术表演)

Wushu kids from our competition team performed at the 14th CPAC Summer Festival, an outdoor event in the Chinese-Canadian community celebrating Multiculturalism and Canada Day. The event was held at Scarborough Civic Centre in Toronto, Canada on June 24, 2017.

Thank you to all of our athletes for a successful performance, and many thanks to the parent volunteers.

Our performance was covered by local newspaper Chinese Canadian Voice. Here is an excerpt of the article and photos featured on their website. 

功夫了得,不愧都是世界级顶尖高手 (Wushu worthy of a world class master)

2017年华夏节风采

不知道是否是夏天的缘故,多伦多的周末是忙碌的!这在华人社区来说,情况更是如此!这不,刚刚过去的周六,6月24日,尽管风有点大, 但预报中的暴雨并没有降临,倒是难得的好天气。号称是华人社区最大的户外狂欢节–CPAC华夏节(Summer Festival)在Scarborough Town Cenre成功举行。

从众多的节目安排来看,这倒确实是社区大狂欢!就拿记者在现场的短短时间里,加拿大中国专业妇女协会百合花艺术团的女声三重唱《踩着云》、Ruby的小提琴独奏、李文启武术学院的中国功夫、成功中文学校鹭舞蹈团的舞蹈《春天在哪里》等,特别吸引老人和小孩子们。
